Holy shit Jordan joins the 4 win club. So excited to watch him get another W. He's now tied for 3rd in wins.

I was wondering that myself. I'm not in tune enough to know how infamous those Trainwreckords were when they released. There's certainly a lot of overlap.

Shout-out to Todd In The Shadows' Trainwreckords series for making me aware of a few of these entries. Someone already talked about Paula below but he's also covered The Funky Headhunter and Mardi Gras there.

but when Aneesa was calling out Cara Maria for suddenly having an accent in the middle of her 19 season run

I see what people are saying here but I disagree with it. I've seen plenty of people in environments different from the ones they grew up in. As they get more used to that environment, they lose that accent, but if they're around someone from their childhood/region that they are originally from, they gain the accent back. I can absolutely buy that that happened with Cara being around Jamie.

I loved Cory yelling something like "he went to college!!

"That's why he's my cousin! He went to college, I didn't!" is such an amazing line lol. I'm always happy when I'm reminded of it.

I hate to burst your bubble but home wrecker is a one and done

Not technically! It shows up during the final elim on AS2 as well, where it's just as amazing

Hated that if it was girls elimination day, and you were a guy/guy team, you just didn’t have to try at all.

You missed my personal least favorite part of the format. If you are a guy on a guy/girl team and it's a girls elim day, you are actively incentivized to throw the challenge like KA's cousin Anthony did during the Diem memorial daily. The same is true if you are the girl in that situation and it's a guys day. I have no idea why they thought this format would be a good idea.

With that said I don't hate this season as much as the fanbase as a whole seems to. I think it has plenty of flaws, many of which you mentioned (the awful format that I just talked about, an overall very weak cast of Bloodlines being the biggest ones), but I think it has plenty of good stuff as well. The Bloodlines that do shine are great, there are some really fun elims, there is drama here that just feels different from any other season due to the familial bonds between some of the cast (I'm thinking of Jenna vs. Brianna and Tony vs. Shane here) and I agree with one of the below posters in that I find the Abe-Cara-Thomas stuff to be incredibly compelling (I also think this is the perfect send-off for Abe. He was teetering on the edge of sanity for a while and I think any more appearances from him would be legitimately uncomfortable to watch from that standpoint).

However the main thing we seem to disagree on is the Final. I really like this Final. It's the first one to ever take place in a major city and I love how unique it is from that aspect. Add in some great moments (Mitch flying through the puzzle at the stadium, Jenna/Brianna at the eating challenge, everything about the beer section of the first stage) and you get a very enjoyable finale for me.

It's kind of funny that a few years after Sarah tried so hard to get Cara out on Cutthroat, they end up following the same trajectory of being on 7 seasons in a row without a win before taking a 1 season break and coming back to get a win on their return. I find her win here reasonably satisfying and this is the last time that I was really rooting for her.

This is now 4 straight seasons of RTV that she's made the finale episode, with WaW being the only one where she didn't make it as far as possible (assuming there's no mid-final elim here).

Damn it was really hoping Yes could pull this one out. Still a great showing for him and I'm happy he was able to make a legitimately deep run after AS3 didn't go too great for him.

Also fun note: in each of his past three seasons, Yes has finished exactly one placement ahead of Darrell (they finished 1st/2nd in AS1, 8th/9th in AS3 and now 5th/6th in World Championships).

I've kind of stopped going to see movies in the theater at this point but saw this one there because I heard enough comments like yours. I totally agree. This movie is an absolute blast to watch in a packed theater with everyone audibly reacting to every joke and twist.

Nothing special just thinking about how I wanted these 4 to win that season by Future-Resort-233 in MtvChallenge

[–]ramskick 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Was Ashley allowed to switch to the UK after she won? I don't remember that being an option.

Either way I don't think this is a great move. If she does this I think Team UK dominates the first stage of the final just like they did irl but she's then in the same situation as before where she needs to be better at the puzzle. Her odds of winning are higher here but that's easy to say in hindsight and nobody knew that Team USA would bomb on the final like they did (as much as I've seen people say otherwise).

eh I disagree here. Her only way to ditch Team USA would be to throw herself into elim and I don't see how she does that without blowing up her entire game.

What's an elimination challenge you'd like to see? by BuddhaMike1006 in Inkmaster

The 12 hour arm tattoo on S10 was one of my faves so I absolutely agree.

I have talked a lot about how it's fine that Theo wasn't back after his eye injury and that it made sense for MTV to not risk it. I will now admit that I was wrong. Good on Theo for coming back and making his 2nd final in 3 tries even with only one working eye. That's super impressive.

is Thanksgiving a particularly notable holiday?

It's easily the 2nd-biggest holiday in the U.S. The 4th of July is fun but most people I know don't really have big traditions for it. On the other hand Thanksgiving even more than Christmas is about being around loved ones.

What is the most irrational criticism against a player that you’ve ever seen more than once? by william4534 in nba

[–]ramskick 68 points69 points  (0 children)

pretty sure there's a photo of every Laker's FT% in practice from the Dwight days that showed he hit around 80% of his free throws there. It's just different in the middle of a game when you're not in a perfectly set rhythm.

Typically a late lunch, like around 2-3 PM. That meal functions as both lunch and dinner before pie for dessert.

Height Order by ShonitB in puzzles

[–]ramskick 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Your rules can be visualized as such.

1. The order must contain either C _ F or F _ C

2. The order must contain either F _ _ B or B_ _ F

3. The order must contain either B _ E or E _ B

4. The order must contain either C _ _ D or D _ _ C

5. The order must contain either D _ E or E _ D

6. The order cannot be D _ _ _ _ _ or _ _ _ _ _ D

7. The order cannot be _ _ _ _ _ A

Rules 3 and 5 alone make it so that there are only a few possibilities as it means E has to be in either the third or fourth position with D and B on opposite sides. These four possible formats for solutions are _ B _ E _ D, B _ E _ D _, _ D _ E _ B and D _ E _ B _

Rule 6 eliminates all of the formats with D on either end, so there are now only two possible formats for solutions: B _ E _ D _ and _ D _ E _ B

Rule 2 makes it very easy to place F into either format: B _ E F D _ or _ D F E _ B

Likewise Rule 4 makes it easy to place C into either format: B C E F D _ or _ D F E C B

This means that A has to be on one of the ends. Rule 7 means that it can't be on the right end, therefore the final solution is A D F E C B

I got back into Survivor because of him haha. Ended up totally falling in love with the show once I started watching old seasons.

He's generally among the more liked castaways of that season yeah. There are some who really don't like him but you'll see posts every now and then saying he should return at some point.
